Cool Fluiddampr

Does anyone have any dyno #'s and install instruction on putting one in? does the entire front end have to come off for install?

Re: Fluiddampr

I don't have dyno numbers, but install isnt' that difficult. I didn't remove anything from my front end other than the fan and fan schroud. You'll need a dedicated puller to get the stock dampner off, and either an install tool or a longer bolt to get the Fluidampr started back on the crank. The bolt they send is not long enough to get the threads started in the crank. Overall, it wasn't that difficult or time consuming, IMO.

Re: Fluiddampr

It makes it easier to pull the rad, but you will need to pull the fan and shroud. IIRC the torque is 212ft/lbs. I install all of the ones I've done with a longer bolt to start with a lot of never-sieze on the threads. Then the correct bolt and I use my impact, but I know it well enough I can get with in 25ft/lbs or so of what I want which is close enough for the size bolt we are dealing with here.

The damper is not a mod to pickup power numbers, it's a reliabilty mod. The damper really works well and will help the bottom end live longer and the truck runs much smoother.

Re: Fluiddampr

Ya, you might see 15hp on a 600HP truck turning 4k.

There certainly is wasted power from vibration and harmonics, but in our applications you aren't going to see big HP gains from this mod. Now on a gas pot turning 8500 rpm sure, yer gonna see that on a dyno easy and I have don't just that.

Fluidampr on a 7.3 is for reliability and smoothness.
